Two volunteer teams of Seattle City Light employees will take on the Columbia Center March 24 to raise money for the fight against cancer.
The teams, which call themselves the Tower of Power and Seattle City Light Savers, are joining other volunteers in the annual Big Climb, sponsored by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Donations go toward blood cancer research – including finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma – and patient support services.
The Big Climb is a stair climb up the Columbia Center – the tallest skyscraper in downtown Seattle. There are 69 flights of stairs, 1,311 steps, and 788 feet of vertical elevation.
Each of the Seattle City Light teams hopes to raise at least $2,500.
To support them and the fight against blood cancer diseases, go to their Big Climb donation pages.
